I am shutting down my computer.

After a long heartfelt discussion with my wife, we have decided that there's there's more bad news than good news on the computer. In fact, my wife doesn't much care for my attitude when I sign off after a spate of forum discussions.

I don't even need a computer. My knife supplier and I talk on the telephone, and they have their own website I use for research.

Some of you have become friends and you can always call and schmooze. But I'll be 70 years old now, and I found that many times I sign onto a forum and a feeling of "dread" washes over me.

I'll post this, and then computer is shut down.

Chico, you're a friend and it's pains me to say this but your computer isn't the problem.

I second that emotion. That is, if this is the real Chico and not some evil forum hacker.

I agree 1000% with Chuck.

Call your shrink, take your meds, take a coffee enema, take a nap, you'll be back in a week or two, if your gone that long.

Self inflected drama, not a computer problem...

For the 1,001 time and just like that he is gone again.

That's a bit presumptive. Being the kind, thoughtful and caring person that I am, I vote to give the imposter a chance.

He can't hear us. He unplugged his computer and is sending it back to Chuck from whence it came.

Chico,

Plugged or unplugged, you should know that Chuck has been one hell of an advocate for you over a long period of time. Behind the scenes he's done everything he can to accommodate.

I wish you well and hope unplugging from Internet forums reduces the 'dread' in your life.

Good luck.

Earlier, Chuck and I talked about getting this section of the forum running again. Let's see if the pictures still work! Cross your fingers...
